the capital will continue to grow. last year it was like a hundred new york city based companies that acquired $1.8 billion. it's just the beginning. if you think about san francisco and new york, the future couldn't be brighter because tech business is where the business is where people want to go. if intellectual capital is what your business requires, i don't think you can find two cities in the country that can provide that better than san francisco and new york. in new york we work very hard to bring universities like the university you have here just south of here that is so known for creating the world that we live in today. we are trying to bring that to new york and we have the cornell university, one of the great ivy league schools opening a graduate campus. it's not for undergraduates, right in new york city and they are bringing technology and cornell and it interest. it's really a powerhouse that will create jobs that we are already getting and columbia is also expanding there. engineering school is doubling the size of it and nyu is collaborating with overseas unive

[applause] >> good afternoon. my am daphne and case manager with the outreach team and local three. i am calling -- calling -- i wanted to say san francisco is traditionallythe city of outlaws and now it's the have's and have not's and the people that i work for have nothing. everyone has failed. in this field we know it offers poor financial compensation and the apartment is 72% of my income every month. i will never be able to buy a home in san francisco and i accepted that. i probably can't get a master of social work because i can't afford it and i'm at peace with that. what i am not at peace is when i see a dead body or a client wa

save the city a lot of money by caring for the poor and disadvantaged which is way cheaper in an institutional setting. we've absorbed clients who are often discharged from the hospital early. there's no doubt that our job is challenging and it's only fair we be compensated for the work we do. although we got 2 percent last year but that's not enough. we also work straight 5 years without one single raise. although i don't have children i work with a lot of coworkers who pay 6 homicide dollars a month and 1 thousand for two or more a month. i - . thank you (clapping) >> good afternoon supervisors and good afternoon to my colleagues. okay. on on behalf of my union as i can see we're all wearing purple. is we're concerned with something 7 .9 is a big amount of money and you guys will see to where this money goes. we have to be part of it, too. every penny of it will be counted too. we work so hard and your economy is going up yet saucer salaries are also the same. we want to be separate and one because we've been part of it that making this money come back to us. 7 .9 is the money
